What theme is that?

I like the layout. Sparse, bare so a person can focus on the layout.

It actually looks like something you would use as a portfolio of sorts to attract clients to what you write so as to get more work.

But anyway, I like the information you have on there.

Good job!

I'm not sure how I feel about it. It's an interesting discussion for sure. In his shoes, I'd probably be surprised that some folks were buying my stuff in order to resell it at a higher price, but I don't think I'd react the way he has. I guess we're all just different people. That's understandable. Good on him for giving old equipment a new life.

He sounds old school and gets annoyed that everyone needs to make a buck. Times are harder than they probably were back in his day, and he might not grasp that.

I think he should understand that people aren't re-selling as a disrespect to what he's doing, they're just trying to make money in a world where that's hard to do.

I wonder if they have better repair laws, because so many things in the US seem destined to fail and impossible to fix. Good on him for figuring out his niche. It's sad that some of the buyers try to take advantage of his reasonable prices by reselling his work.
